What is psychotherapy?

Psyche comes from the Greek meaning soul. Therapy is to take care of-to heal. So a literal translation is to heal or take care of the soul.

Why do I need psychotherapy?

It has become clear that our minds and bodies influence each other in many ways and therefore, having a healthy mind benefits the entire body, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Why do most people enter into therapy?

There are many reasons that you may decide to participate in therapy. Many people just need to sort through their feelings or to gain insight or clarity on a problem. However, many people utilize therapy for growth and change.

How long do I stay in therapy?

Many people can reach their goals in 3 to 6 months. However, there is no "right" length of time.  It depends upon what you feel you need. Many people come in and out of therapy as they need and this can work well.
